What To Do When

God doesn’t work on our schedules. We think we know when we need something, how we should receive it, or even what we should be doing with it. But what happens when we try to do things our way only to find ourselves in some deep troubled waters?

Your life may be spiraling out of control right now. Your health may be deteriorating. Your friends and family might have left and you feel all alone. Your co-workers and boss might be mistreating you. You may not be able to pay the bills. So what are you to do?

I know it sounds crazy but it all means that you are in a prime position for a mighty move of God in your life. When everything is going wild, crazy and simply don’t make sense in your life, then you have two choices (1) try to do things your way or (2) Stop, drop and wait upon the Lord.

No matter what the circumstance looks like, your best option is number 2. You’ve already tried doing things your way and it’s not working. You’ve tried praying about them or trying to run away from the very things God is using to change your life. He doesn’t want to just fix the problem, He wants to fix you inside out.

Think about it this way…if God just fixed every problem, would you need any faith to believe? If God just handed you a million dollars, would you really know how to use it correctly or would you end up being in worse shape when the million dollars slipped through your hands?

God’s ways are much higher than ours. He wants us whole and complete. Sometimes the only way He can truly fix us is by having us go through some deep, dark troubles. It brings us back to Him. It makes us stand on faith and seek Him in deeper ways. It takes all the crude out of us and places the beauty of the Lord within.

So if you are going through some tough times right now make sure to stop, drop and wait upon the Lord. Let Him do a complete and finished work in your life. It may be tough and painful but when you come out on the other side, you will have the tools you need to accomplish the amazing future He has in store for you.

God loves you too much and your purpose in life is too valuable to not have you prepared. Whatever you do, don’t despise the troubles. Seek Him to reveal the reason behind the difficult season. Ask Him what needs to change within you in order to walk into the VICTORY He has for you. Be primed, willing and able to walk into your mighty purpose. God knows exactly when to bring it, how to bring it, and He will be right on time.

What You Need To Know About God

Who is God? What is His Character like? Why should we care? Why do we have to go through these things?

Sometimes, you have to go back to the revelation of who God is before you can move forward. God is very tactical about this and He will create a situation for a revelation. What do I mean?

First…let’s determine what the Bible says about God.

For verifiable Biblical Scriptures regarding the above statements click here

Now that we’ve established who God is and what He’s like, it’s important for us to know that everything that happens in our lives has a reason and purpose. The things you went through had to happen. You had to survive! You had to make it! You had to believe you’re more than a conqueror through Christ! You had to hold onto I’m healed by His stripes, I am the head and not the tail, I am above and not below. You had to hold on when no one else would! You had to believe when all others were walking away from you.

Don’t listen to the naysayers that surround you. Don’t lean on people who can’t believe or trust in where God is taking you. Through it all, God was and is determined to prove His power and presence in your life.

Get off the “Why?” land. You don’t need a reason! Instead let God give you a revelation. He will open whatever doors that are needed for you to flourish into your destiny. And when all things happen in God’s perfect timing, those naysayers will start asking questions giving you an amazing opportunity of sharing God’s love through your own personal testimony. It will be a glorious day when you save souls through the goodness God showed you through it all! He can and will make your restoration come forth! Don’t give up. Keep pushing forward till you see His Victory in your life!

Watch Pastor Steven Furtick bring this incredible teaching to life. It will change the way you see things!

Your Perspective Is Everything

When life throws you a curve ball, your perspective in the midst of the storm will be considerably different from when you obtain your victory afterwards.

Here’s a great quick clip of Pastor Steven Furtick’s take on the matter. It is a great reminder to help us see God’s perspective through the storm and realize there is something bigger coming on the other side of it.

Imagine the Scene

Jesus had caused the lame to walk, the deaf to hear, and the mute to speak. He had taught with authority unlike any teachers of the day and performed miracles that astounded all who witnessed them.

Yet the Savior of the world was hung on a cross, deserted by His followers, and then buried in a tomb.

But there’s more to the story. Three days later, a resurrection took place. Now, the head that was crowned with thorns is crowned with glory.

Let this perspective sink into your heart today…THERE’S MORE TO YOUR STORY.

No matter the past disappointment, present difficulty, or discouraging forecast: Your story is still being written… and the hand of God is holding the pen.

But the fact that God is writing the story doesn’t mean you don’t have a part to play. You need to stand on His word, hold onto your faith, let God be your source and remember, what you’ve been through may be difficult, but God will work it out for your good. Don’t give up now. There is more to your story.

“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.” (Romans 8:18)

The scene you’re in today might be disappointing, but you don’t have to let it be the defining factor of your story. God has more in store for you and your next chapter is being written. Continue to stand in faith and watch God’s incredible story for you unfold into something amazing!

Excerpt by Steven Furtick

You Are More Than A Conqueror

Jesus shed His blood in seven different places to break every curse and redeem us to every blessing His blood activates. It is a time to remember exactly what Jesus did for each and every one of us. He paid the ultimate sacrifice. He broke every curse. He broke every addiction. He gave us dominion and authority.

  1. In the Garden of Gesthemane: He bought back our willpower and to redeem our will. (Matthew 26:39)
  2. At the Whipping Post: By His stripes we are healed. Every curse of sickness and disease was broken. (1Peter 2:24)
  3. Crown of Thorns: To break the curse of poverty. (Genesis 3:17-18)
  4. In His hands: To restore dominion to the works of our hands. (Deut. 28:12-13)
  5. In His feet: To give us authority everywhere we walk. (Joshua 1:3)
  6. In His side: His was wounded for our transgressions, bruised for our iniquities and heals our broken hearts. (Luke 4:18)
  7. He stomped on the devil’s forehead and bruised His heel to break every family and generational curse. (Isaiah 53:5)

Take back your God-given blessings that Jesus gave us. When He said “IT IS FINISHED”, he didn’t mean it would be a hit or miss, pie-in-the-sky kind of faith. He returned us to the Father who is there for us every single moment of every day. He gave us everything we needed to make it through any trial, any difficulty, and any situation that comes against us that is contrary to the Word of God!

Take your stand against the enemy. You are more than conqueror through the Blood of Jesus. You are the head and not the tail, above and not below, you are the lender not the borrower. Take back what the devil has stolen and remind him that Jesus’ blood gives you complete victory.

Don’t let another day go by without thanking Jesus for His sacrifice and for the heavenly blessings He has bestowed towards you. Return unto Him and he’ll return unto you. Give and it shall be given to you. Know the seven places Jesus shed His blood and understand why God’s Word is Final! It is because of Jesus that you will have favor with Him and with man. Praise His Name above all others and watch the amazing blessings burst forth into your life.

Today is a new day. Activate the 7 places Jesus shed His blood and He will bring favor upon you. Let God stand in front of you and your family to make every curse pass over your home, business, health, family, and finances. Almighty God will open the windows of Heaven over you and your family which will release the blessings that Jesus’ blood provides. You are more than a conqueror through the Blood of Jesus Christ and today, your life will never be the same. Rejoice for the Lord is good – Your Victory Is At Hand!
